shitOS is faster if you do a clean install

That is Windows. It’s the shittiest OS you can get. It’s not free either.

Upgrading my kernel, so I can reboot.

Having lots of stuff installed in Linux, might not matter. Windows was designed poorly. Instead of rewriting it from scratch, they keep adding shit, and making it shittier and shittier. Might be why some people still use XP.

Using Linux would be better then XP, you still get security updates.
